Daddy long legs - a serious problem?

Well said, Verdun. Not to mention the millions flying about in thousands of aeroplanes daily spewing out toxic fumes just under the ozon layer!

Thank you to Tech team

Pear tree infection

Juniperus chinensis

Pear rust spores are carried and spread mainly by Juniperus chinensis.

If you have any of these near your trees, get rid of them. In Switzerland these have to be reported to the local councils who then come to eradicate them.

Very interesting BGL, shame I'm not in the UK, otherwise I would join your website. However, have bookmarked it, and will check it regularly. Particularly liked the composting info.

I think the so-called techies have more degrees than common sense and if they stopped playing around with the site this probably wouldn't happen.

That's good news, Terri, now you've got two for the price of one! I hope they don't charge you for the 2nd one!

Obviously, I can't order plants from T&M, but have ordered many seeds from them which have grown well. Only downside is that the seed packets don't have pictures of the flowers on them, so have to just remember from the names what they are.
